The project mainly deals with the design, analysis and
manufacture of connecting rod. The connecting rod is an integral part of
reciprocating engines, reciprocating pumps, gas compressors and pneumatic
cylinders among others with similar mechanisms. In an engine, the main
objective of the connecting rod is to transfer force from expanding gas in the
cylinder to the crankshaft. The design of the connecting rod and analyzing the
manufacturing process of it. The temperature of connecting rod has a
significant influence on efficiency, emission, performance of the SI engine.
The purpose of these studies is to measure the transient temperature of
connecting rod at different points on the connecting rod, from cold start to
steady condition and compare those values with the standard results of finite
element analysis. In this project, the connecting rod is modelled and assembled
with the help of SOLID WORKS software and the component is meshed and analysis
is done in ANSYS software and the modal and static behaviour is studied and the
results are tabulated. The various stresses acting on the connecting rod under
various loading conditions have been studied. In the present work, the focus on
the following aspects is to overcome the research gaps and to display the
results based on the systematic studies:
Different modes of deformations for the
connecting rod of an engine.
FEA software to measure stresses at different
points and to observe the behaviour of the connecting rod.
